I'd lost my watch you see, so I was running blind. Really got a move on after that, but found later Mrs TR had got the time wrong - it was 1145.
After the hard terrain, boggy bits, and lots of stony sections of the first half the second was far more pleasant. A compacted earth easy-to-follow path for the most part. Stunning cliffs still and spectacular views of the various rocky islands especially Ramsey Island with its one white farmhouse. I've been inside it - great location. No pesky neighbours.
Eventually left the coast at about 23 miles for a devious route around St David's, finishing with a loop around the cathedral grounds with the bells ringing loudly and hushed visitors and us runners occasionally passing through covered in mud, salt, and sweat looking anything but holy.
A long climb back to the rugby ground finish (were earlier Mrs TR had got the car stuck on the field leaving behind two craters), a dispiriting number of loops around the posts, and a low-key finish. The most brilliant lime green finisher's T you've ever seen and stone cold showers. Well the organising company was called 'Man-Up.'
